B12 Liquid (Methylcobalamin)
Active, coenzyme form of vitamin B12
B12 Liquid (Methylcobalamin) provides essential vitamin B12 to support red blood cell function, cardiovascular and neurologic health.† These products are provided in convenient and concentrated liquid forms to support optimal absorption and utilization by the body.
• Available in an active, coenzyme form. Although cyanocobalamin is a commonly used form of supplemental B12, it is it not immediately available for use by the body and must be converted through series of biochemical reactions to be utilized. Methylcobalamin is an active and bioavailable form of vitamin B12.
• Liquid delivery promotes rapid and efficient absorption. When absorbed through the digestive tract, vitamin B12 requires Intrinsic Factor as a transport compound. Increasing age, diet, and certain medications can decrease levels of this carrier and, as a result, negatively affect absorption of vitamin B12. When taken in increased amounts, vitamin B12 can also be absorbed passively and directly into the bloodstream.*
*These products are free of milk, casein, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, gluten, soy beans, and contain no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. Background Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin involved in red blood cell function, homocysteine regulation, and numerous neurologic processes. Although vitamin B12 may be absorbed from dietary sources including fish, meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy, it is a nutrient of need for many individuals, particularly those who avoid animal-based ingredients or have decreased levels of Intrinsic Factor due to increased age, poor diet, and/or certain medications. Compared to other common forms of supplemental B12, such as cyanocobalamin, active methylcobalamin is available for rapid and efficient absorption.
